And the bride wore... pink

Colourful layers offer brides-to-be a unique look on that special day

  • Print

I'm not a betting fashionista but if I had to place my pretty pennies in the hands of Lady Luck I would have had total confidence and faith that they would come back to me with a hefty return if I gambled on February being the busiest month for engagements.

Well, good thing I am not a betting fashionista because this girl would have been dead wrong. According to a David's Bridal poll, 18 per cent of couples get engaged in December -- outpacing the month of love by two to one.

So odds are, with sparkly engagement rings sized, brides-to-be have begun the arduous search for the perfect dress to walk down the aisle in.

Now, white has always been the obvious choice in frock colour for the big day but more and more brides-to-be are opting to forgo the traditional pure white gown for something with a little more pizzazz.

This year's biggest trends in wedding dresses isn't the cut or flare or textile of the dress -- although those do factor in -- it's all about the hue. According to that same David's Bridal poll, over 60 per cent of Canadian brides are choosing to say I do in colour.

Think soft flowing pink layers of organza, billows of pale grey satin and bead encrusted lace in taupe. The coloured gown is the ideal dress for brides who are looking for something extra unique on their special day and no one does it better than wedding dress designer Vera Wang.

In November, Wang launched her Ebony collection -- five gorgeous gowns in black. My absolute favourite is the Emilia gown, which features a flowing tulle ball gown skirt and a jewelled corsage at the hip.

Stunning and alluring, the Ebony collection gives a whole new meaning to the phrase here comes the bride.

David's Bridal is located at 1570 Kenaston Blvd., or you can check out the Vera Wang collection online at www.davidsbridal.ca.
